The Best Toronto Facelift Surgery Techniques in 2018
When it comes to Toronto facelifts, there are many different techniques.
Since no two patients are the same, the technique that will work best for you is the one that will deliver the best results based on your condition and desired goals. Although each person’s “best” will be personalized, there are trends and medical advances being made that can optimize existing facelift techniques to make them more effective.
Avoiding Unnatural Results
In 2018, there has been a shift to less invasive facelifts and neck lifts involving smaller incisions and shorter scars. This allows patients to enjoy a faster recovery with less post-operative swelling and bruising than traditional techniques.
There has also been a trend away from extensive, more invasive techniques such as the deep plane facelift, which essentially involves a repositioning of the underlying facial musculature. Though this can be appropriate for dramatic, long-lasting results, focus has increased on an approach known as the MACS lift, which stands for minimal access, cranial suspension.
Plastic surgeons are now striving to achieve the most natural look possible following a facelift and necklift, which was not necessarily the focus in the past.
While traditionally fat grafting has often been used in conjunction with a Toronto facelift to fill out lines and wrinkles, there has been a shift away from this technique in 2018. Surgeons are now more commonly using long-lasting fillers such as Bellafill to replace skin volume loss rather than fat grafting. The reason for this shift is that fat grafting can often be unpredictable and also carries a risk of complications that end up requiring more work to fix.
The Life-changing Procedure
Types of Fillers
Fillers such as Bellafill are “permanent” types of fillers that offer predictable results and are generally less expensive than fat grafting. They are also less invasive, as they are injectable rather than surgical procedures.
Many patients choose a specific type of facelift only to come in for an evaluation with a facial plastic surgeon and discover that that type of lift is actually not the best one for them.
The most helpful way to determine which facelift technique is right for you is to have an in-depth consultation with an experienced facial plastic surgeon. It is also extremely important to choose a surgeon who not only specializes in plastic surgery, but specifically, facial surgery of the head and neck.
